Hip Joint Replacement

For more than thirty years, joint replacement surgery has had a profound effect on the quality of life in patients with advanced arthritis. And now, new technologies may offer further benefits to qualifying adults suffering from hip pain. Hip Resurfacing, a breakthrough alternative to total hip replacement for qualified candidates, preserves more of the patient’s natural bone, allows for greater range of motion, and can decrease the chance of dislocation.  Anterior Approach total hip replacement is a revolutionary tissue-sparing approach that requires a shorter hospital stay, a smaller incision, and poses less muscle trauma and risk of dislocation. An advanced focus on perioperative pain management addresses techniques in anesthesia, medication, and non-pharmacological options utilized pre-, during, and post-surgery to secure the most comfortable experience possible for patients.

Arthroscopic Hip Surgery

Injuries or conditions that damage the ligaments, bone, cartilage, and other soft tissues surrounding the hip joint can frequently be repaired with minimally invasive hip arthroscopy, or “hip scope.” The hip scope is usually an out-patient procedure that offers smaller incisions, earlier rehabilitation, and an earlier return to activity. The best candidates for this procedure are active individuals who have not yet suffered from significant cartilage loss or arthritis.

Gender specific knee replacements are designed to address scientifically documented differences between the shape of male and female knees.An advanced focus on perioperative pain management addresses techniques in anesthesia, medication, and non-pharmacological options utilized pre-, during, and post-surgery to secure the most comfortable experience possible for patients.

Our patients typically undergo a program of conservative management prior to surgery that may involve cortisone injections, hyaluronic acid supplementation (Synvisc or Hyalgan), bracing, and physical therapy.

Sports Medicine and Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

Injuries or conditions that damage the ligaments, bone, cartilage, and other soft tissues surrounding the knee joint can frequently be repaired with minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery, or “knee scope.” The knee scope is usually an out-patient procedure that offers smaller incisions, earlier rehabilitation, and an earlier return to activity.

Advanced Cartilage Restoration has revolutionized the options now available to patients with joint cartilage damage. Procedures are now available to surgically repair, regenerate, or replace cartilage to relieve pain, delay the onset of arthritis, and delay the need for joint replacement.
